Anyway when I had my hair colored about a month ago, I did not realize that I should be doing more than the typical shampoo-conditioner-rinse routine; or that I can still do the routine but I have to divert from the usual bath products that I have been using. I have been
Rigorous research, which translates to the August issue of Cosmo, told me that shampoo strips off hair color and as you may know, a good salon color does not come cheap. Sorry Pantene but we might not see each other for a while. I'll attempt to develop a friendship with these guys for the meantime.
I've been using L'Oreal shampoo and conditioner for three days now coupled with the leave-on ceramide repair I've purchased months ago. So far I'm not getting the silky feeling that I get with Pantene but I would like to give these products a chance. Let's just say that we are still at the adjustment period.
I made a more drastic and bold move when I purchased these last night:
I am not gifted with beautiful skin. It would have been nice if I was given microscopic pores, but no I wasn't. My skin has always been problematic since my teenage years. Six cleansers, two dermatologists and a couple of hormone pills after, I still had breakouts and acne. My recent dermatologist told me that my acne could be triggered by restless hormones.
I have read about Mario Badescu in magazines, blogs and other online forums and people, including celebrities, have been swearing by the effects of their products. I realized that I have been spending a lot on clothes and shoes but I have not been investing on facial care and it's high time that I do. My previous mentality was that I do not want my skin to get used to those high end brands but I've come to the realization that my skin is THAT sensitive and will never go for the drugstore brands. Let's see after two months if they live up to my expectations because geez they are pretty damn E-X-P-E-N-S-I-V-E. Now I am still on the hunt for the perfect moisturizer.
I'm highly optimistic about these. *crosses fingers*
